JAMB Concludes Investigation on Mmesoma Ejikeme, Reveals Findings

The Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB) has concluded its investigations into the alleged manipulation of the Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) result by a candidate, Mmesoma Ejikeme.

This was made known on Tuesday by the Registrar of the board, Professor Ishaq Oloyede who said findings revealed what happened as a high-level scam and a careless forgery.

According to the JAMB Registrar, other candidates apart from Ejikeme were also involved in the malpractice but they chose not to go public.

Oloyede revealed that there is a syndicate behind the manipulation of results which is trying to penetrate JAMB but the board’s system is foolproofed against such attempts.

The truth is that JAMB has concluded the investigation on Nmesoma’s score falsification matter. She was not the only one caught, just that others have chosen not to go out”, Oloyede said.

Presently, there is an industry faking results and unfortunately they cannot penetrate JAMB system, reasons being that (our) system is foolproofed and we will prove it any time. It is unfortunate that parents and some of the candidates that are being fooled are not aware that they are only being fooled, Oloyede told Punch.

On the specific allegations against Ejimeke, the JAMB Registrar said the Anambra State student collaborated with some people to falsify her UTME result.

He said” “There is internal evidence to show that the change in Ejikeme’s scores was done with her collaboration. There are certain features pertaining to her that only her knows unless she makes it available to somebody else. They couldn’t have increased her scores on her behalf.”
